    JBossWeb losing POST data during FORM Authentication

    Alex Alek Newbie


      My post relates to https://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBAS-5645
      I request a secured URL via a form with a post. Something like this:

      <form method="POST" action="userHome" name="userHomeForm">
      <input type="hidden" name="mydata" value="MYDATA"/>
       <input type="submit" value="Enter Here"/>

      This is the login.jsp. In JBoss 3 this works fine and I'm able to get to the "mydata" request parameter. However, in JBoss AS 5, this always comes null. In fact there are not request parameters at this time. But after the user is signed in, the request parameters are available.

       String mydata = request.getParameter( "mydata" );
       out.println("<p>My Data: " + mydata + "</p>");
       <form method="POST" action="j_security_check">
       <td><strong>User ID: </strong></div></td>
       <td><input type="text" name="j_username" /></td>
       <td><div align="right"><strong>Password:</strong></div></td>
       <td><input type="password" name="j_password"/></td>
       <td><input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit" /></td>

      The Jira above states that this is fixed, but my request parameters are not available from this page. When the user successfully signs in, the parameters are available. But not from this page.

      I am using JBoss AS 5.0.1.GA. Does anyone know if this has really been fixed? I really need to move from JBoss 3 to JBoss 5
